I started in the insurance industry in 1981 on the life and financial side of things and held the designations of Life Underwriter Training Council Fellow (LUTCF) and Certified Professional Insurance Agent (CPIA). In 1986, I joined my sister and brother at the family agency – ViVenzio Insurance where we now run the agency founded by my father.
For all of us, it’s about family and community. I enjoy helping local businesses preserve what they’ve built and families protect what they’ve worked so hard to build. Accidents happen as do tragedies – what we do at ViVenzio helps soften those blows and we get people back on their feet. That means something to all of us here. You could say Insurance is just in our blood!
My main role at ViVenzio is working with our business clients especially contractors, manufacturers, and garage/auto body shops. I find these industries fascinating. I am also certified by CMS to market Medicare Supplements, Medicare advantage, and prescription drug plans.
Earlier in my career I was the President of the CT Young Insurance Professionals (CYIP) and served on their board for many years and attended the UConn School of Insurance.
I currently live in Ellington, CT with my wife and son but also spend as much time as possible at the Cape in the Summer and Southern Florida in the Winter. I also try to ride my Harley whenever possible – if there’s an opportunity for a road trip with my local group Good Vibes, I’ll take it! When not on the bike, you’ll find me at the Ellington Ridge Country Club where I’ve been hitting the links since 1999.
